User :   Hello. I am scheduled to have oral surgery tomorrow morning to remove my wisdom teeth. However I have not been feeling well the past two days and I am almost certain I have a sinus infection (I've had many in the past). Is it still safe for me to go ahead with surgery? I do not want to have reschedule, however I do not want to go ahead with surgery if it will put me at risk for serious infections or complications.
